    FF8 was easily the worst in the series!
    FFIV -> FFVI -> FFX -> FFT -> FFXII -> FF -> FFV -> FFXIII -> FFXIII-2 -> FFX-2 -> ET for the Atari2600 -> FFVIII
    I’ve left out a few, and yes I’ve played them, they are kinda mixed in there, all better than FF8.

    Zell > Tifa just sayin 😐

    its s shame that enix have turned square into a joke

  4. Christopher Hall December 8, 2018 at 4:43 pm

    Biggs and Wedge go all the way back to FFI, they're names you can get when making your party

    Nice vid, man. I love this game so much…. I need a remake.

    Final Fantasy 8 is the worst of the PlayStation 1 titles. Both 7 and 9 were far superior in so many ways that it's ridiculous, Tactics? Damn near legendary.

    The best part about Final Fantasy 8 was Triple Triad, that was the most unique and fun part about the game. Yes I know about the Chocobo mini game … Tamagotchis were cooler.

    Aren't fujin and raijin also used in arc the lad? Edit: found out that they are japanese deities.

    ffviii also had a demo disc in the ffvii non platinum version in EU

    I really want to see HD re-releases of 1,2, & 8 on steam.

  10. MarkDarc87 December 8, 2018 at 4:43 pm

    Just wanted to say thanks for the facts. Honestly was unaware of most of it. I knew the timber magazines affected the flashbacks, but had no clue which ones did. And it also gives evidence of my sanity, because I ALWAYS KNEW THERE WAS SOOOOME REASON WHY WARD DIDN'T HAVE MY BACK AGAINST THAT RUBY DRAGON!!! But all's well that ends well =]
    Great video.

  11. CmdrLeonhart December 8, 2018 at 4:43 pm

    Nearly 20 years later and I'm still as in love with this game as I was the day it was released. Thanks for the video. It was lovely to learn some things I hadn't known about the game.

  12. Leon Kenny jones December 8, 2018 at 4:43 pm

    Best game Square has made! It's begging for a remake

  13. Nick Barrier December 8, 2018 at 4:43 pm

    This video made me want to replay the game. Great video!

  14. Jay December 8, 2018 at 4:43 pm

    VIII sucked so badly. Just look at how much more original their next game (IX) was.

  15. Chris Dawnovan December 8, 2018 at 4:43 pm

    Didnt… know…. any of this.

  16. Mordecai Walfish December 8, 2018 at 4:43 pm

    Bought FFVI/III on the day of release in USA. after the masterpiece that was FFIV/II, it was one of the easiest and best gaming purchases I ever made. Weird to hear it didn't do well..

  17. KiNA Suki December 8, 2018 at 4:43 pm

    Curse you, I dunno about that Laguna and Zell.. so now I need to play again 🙁 but I have the disc no more :/

    Rinoa remains my 1st game love.

  18. The Beard December 8, 2018 at 4:43 pm

    Good info but the vast mispronunciations killed this video for me.

  19. Michael Leue December 8, 2018 at 4:43 pm

    Wasn't FFVIII the one where a bunch of random people from an orphanage all get amnesia for no reason, spread out around the world, meet again by a series of meaningless coincidences, and then become best friends afterward for no reason? And then Time got squooshed so the writers could stop dealing with causality with all the incomprehensible flashbacks and just say whatever nonsense came into their heads? Worst plot of an RPG ever.

    Today started the FFVIII event in Mobius FF. It shows Ultimecia dancing and acting like Rinoa to mock Squall in the trailer.
    There was a stream to promote the event and Kitase appeared showing some sort of old draft or script of the game. It showed that Edea was going to be named Misty and Laguna was going to be named Seifer, among other things.

  21. MSSynsyterGates December 8, 2018 at 4:43 pm

    Dude great job on the video. I love FFVIII and I didnt know any of these.

  22. Luis Karnov December 8, 2018 at 4:43 pm

    Did you notice the similarity between Kiros And Voldo (soul calibur)??

  23. Charles Kennedy December 8, 2018 at 4:43 pm

    Many hours of my youth spent on FF VII

  24. nero December 8, 2018 at 4:43 pm

    that was interresting please more of this ^^

  25. Youtube User December 8, 2018 at 4:43 pm

    One thing that learned about this game from AGDQ as far as Zell goes is that you don't even need the Combat King magazines. If you just know the inputs you have Zell's full LB from the start.

    FACT: final fantasy 8 is Pia Wurtzbach's favorite final fantasy game… HOPE IS NOT LOST GAME NERDS, GIRL GAMERS EXISTS…

  27. Heavygusto December 8, 2018 at 4:43 pm

    Thumbs up for the probably in your title.

  28. Gabriela December 8, 2018 at 4:43 pm

    I want Square to remake the game because it is such a great game and people who dont like it just haven't played it yet and only base it off of what they hear from others who havent played it.

  29. alyssa galero December 8, 2018 at 4:43 pm

    Wow didnt even know that Oran Durai fact

  30. Fenrir AB December 8, 2018 at 4:43 pm

    Fun Fact, You can use Zell's Limit Break input in the beginning of the game IF you memorized it. I use Final Heaven as soon as Zell enters the party.

  31. Brock Samson December 8, 2018 at 4:43 pm

    Fffffucking love the vibes in this game when it first came out. Internet ruins everything.

  32. C PT December 8, 2018 at 4:43 pm

    I’ve probably played and beaten FFVIII five times over and I never knew about the library girl with a pigtail dialogue! 😳 Didn’t know that stuff about Raijin, Fujin, and Edea either! lol
